62. Machine guns were never owned by many, nothing like semi-auto proliferation.

I suspect a ban on private ownership of jet fighters would work out too, no numbers to contend with in legal hands to start.

The 1934 ban almost exclusively impacted gangsters not law abiding citizens, this an order of magnitude heavier lift, impacting a far broader swath of the population and even with that there was no actual ban, folks own such weapons to this very day.
